The first thing you notice about Firehouse is simply how impressive the space is. Located on the ground floor of an old fire station in the Arts District (the rest of the building is a fancy boutique hotel), Firehouse resides in an entirely outdoor side patio that’s easily our favorite new place to eat outside in LA. That said, this spot is more than just looks - the global menu is very good as well. The Japanese sweet potato and cavatelli should definitely both be ordered, but if the house burger doesn’t make it on the table at some point, don’t even bother telling people you came here.
